The Behaviour of Cultures of Leishmania sp. in Phlebotomus papatasii


WE must apologise for two errors in the note on the behaviour of cultures of Leishmania in P. papatasii (NATURE, Jan. 8, p. 48). Sandfly No. 172 was not laboratory bred but was caught in Jerusalem, but as the infection rate in sandflies in Jerusalem is either nil or so small as to be negligible (not a single example of an infection was found during two years' dissection), this makes no difference to the conclusions deduced from the experiment. The inoculation was performed on Sept. 20, and not Sept. 26.
